Weekend Reflections: State House Square

State House Square is one of the modern structures facing Hartford's Old State House in the downtown.  It incorporates some old facades, but it is mainly modern highrise construction with an eclectic combination of architectural elements.

Eclectic is right! Postmodern with a hint of art deco influence it seems.

I really like the flag reflected in the entrance.
